A friend linked me to this interesting article on Frank Cho. He described it as slightly depressing but I think the most depressing aspect might be Frank’s dedication to drawing enormous breasts at all times in spite of no longer being 15 years old. The article mentions his years of syndication with Liberty Meadows and the changes required over the years, and I’m not really surprised to hear that a lot of the arguments were over sexual content. One of the most interesting changes the article doesn’t mention by name happened in the original transition from college strip to newspaper comic, when the main character magically transformed from platypus to human. I’m assuming this is because that character was in a relationship with buxom male fantasy Brandy, and maybe that was just too weird for primetime when one of them was an animal. Having read both, I’m highly in favor of the change myself.
